September 16, 1898

removal shall be approved by the State board of health and the consent 
of the health officer of the locality to which the corpse is consigned has

[Reports to the Supervising Surgeon-General United States Marine-Hospital Service.] 

Smallpox in Albuquerque, N. Mex., and vicinity. 

Albuquerque, N. Mex., September 4., 1898. 
Sir : My failure to make weekly report was due to sickness. In 
former report, number of cases should have been 44 instead of 40, as I 
have since discovered that where 1 case of smallpox had been reported 
there were 4 others not reported. Since then we have had 2 cases 
occurring outside city limits, which we removed to pesthouse, and 6 
cases occurring within city limits, making a total of 52 cases. 

At present there are 3 in the pesthouse and 3 within city limits. Of 
these, 2 and possibly 3 will be discharged during the week. 

Very respectfully, Jno. Eoger Haynes, 

City Cleric. 

Smallpox at Put in Bay, Ohio. 

Columbus, Ohio, September, 6, 1898. 
Sir : Smallpox developed among the servants at the Victory Hotel, 
at Pat in Bay, Ohio, about the middle of August. Up to the present 
time there have been 26 cases ; 21 of the patients being negroes. Most 
of these negroes had been brought to the hotel from Asheville, N. C. 
Proper precautions are now being taken to prevent spread of the disease. 
Yours, truly, 0. O. Probst, Secretary.
